a most interesting company

Winebow has always been a recognized player in the drinks industry, but over the past several years, significant changes have taken place. Through a combination of acquisitions and expansion, the company has built a hybrid business model that includes both importing and distributing. While it’s not the only enterprise to pursue that two-pronged strategy, there’s something unique about Winebow. For a company of its scale, the breadth of its portfolio is pretty remarkable. And while some other players in this industry are losing out to consolidation, Winebow has gained momentum year after year, cementing its position as a business to watch.

RNDC, Breakthru End Merger Talks…. After nearly a year and a half of talks, Republic National Distributing Co. (RNDC) and Breakthru Beverage Group have ended discussions about a merger of the two companies, the second- and third-largest wine and spirits wholesalers in the U.S., respectively. The companies have decided to move on due to delays from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). With legal fees mounting, RNDC and Breakthru opted to withdraw their application to the FTC. Originally announced in November 2017, the merger of RNDC and Breakthru was expected to create a 30-state distributor that could mount a national challenge to 45-market player Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. RNDC is projecting revenues of $8.1 billion this year, while Breakthru is expected to tally $5.4 billion in sales, according to Shanken’s Impact Newsletter.…
